I have followed politics closely since the 1992 Presidential election. That’s nearly 25 years and it all that time, I have never been witness to a more loathsome politician — check that — human being in Washington DC than Harry Reid. Leave it to Reid, of course, to smear James Comey as the year comes to a close.
In the movie, ‘Sudden Impact,’ another Harry, in this case ‘Dirty Harry’ Callahan explains to some punk that there are different types of dog crap. He says to the punk, “To me, you’re nothing but a dog sh*t, understand? A lot of things can happen to dog sh*t. It can be scraped up with a shovel off the ground. It can dry up and blow away in the wind, or it can be stepped on and squashed. So take my advice and be careful where the dog sh*ts you.”
In this case, the dog sh*t Harry Reid into the United States Senate. Reid once stood on the floor of the Senate in 2012 and accused Mitt Romney of crimes related to taxes. He later, proudly admitted he was lying and didn’t care. From the same Senate floor, he called David and Charles Koch, two men who have done more for their country than Reid ever well, “un-American.”
Now, on his way out the door as a human pile of dog poop that will dry up and blow away in the Nevada wind, he’s going after James Comey:
“It’s obvious he was a partisan in all this,” Reid told CNN’s Manu Raju in an interview. “There’s information out there. He had it, I’m confident. And he ignored it.”
He said Comey “significantly” helped make Trump the President-elect, faulting his failure to condemn Russian hacking of Democratic operatives and his handling of the investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s email server.
Reid said he urged Comey to address the hacking, which intelligence agencies have concluded was the result of Russian efforts to tilt the election toward Trump.
“I am saying the FBI did nothing — did nothing. All the information that we’ve heard in the last couple weeks, it was available to the FBI. He just ignored it. He did not make it public. We asked him to more than once and he didn’t do it,” Reid said.
He also pointed to Comey’s letter to lawmakers less than two weeks from the election announcing that — as part of the FBI’s investigation into sexting allegations against Anthony Weiner, the husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin — it had discovered emails potentially relevant to its investigation into Clinton’s handling of classified information on her private email server.
“In fact, to show how awful this situation is, this man ignored precedent that had been going on for decade after decade after decade. The FBI does not get involved in politics — except Comey did,” Reid said.
That’s odd coming from the same pile of dog poop who said of Comey when he didn’t recommend indicting Hillary Clinton, “No one can question the integrity, the competence.”
Wouldn’t it stand to reason if Comey is the partisan Reid claims he is, that he would have shouted from the rooftops Hillary Clinton should be indicted in the email scandal? A possible indictment hanging over her candidacy for the final three months of the election cycle would do far more damage than some letter being released late on a Friday afternoon.
As for the Russian hacking, the FBI has not reached the same “conclusion” as the CIA that Russia was actively attempting to “help” Donald Trump in his bid for the White House so what possible statement could he make to satisfy Reid?
Thankfully, it doesn’t matter. James Comey will still be the F.B.I. Director when Reid departs the Senate the for good.
So long and good riddance, Senator Dog Poop.
